We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Thanks, BD. That was a SUPER video. Entertainment doesn't come along like that any more. No doubt in my mind that the best music videos are those of live performances by the artists. His "GI Jive" is also a great tune that they frequently play on Sirius XM Channel 4. cheers.

What? How can anyone place me in the same sentence as paco?
Did I set up a scam of massive proportions in Nigeria? NO.
Did I sell the Niagara Falls to Canada? NO.
And when I took the Tardis back to 1803 Paris to look for Stoop Davy Dave and stupidly took paco with me ďto helpĒ, did I instead wander off to Napoleonís palace and negotiate the sale of most of Spainís North American possessions to Thomas Jefferson for a whopping 50% commisssion?! NO.
I mean to say, imagine my surprise when I came back and found out New France no longer existed. Missouri, part of the US. Iowa, part of the US. Same goes for the Dakotas, Oklahoma, Iowa. Even Arkansas! What happened to King Bill and Fair Queen Hilllary?
The US isnít supposed to be 50 states! Seventeen. Just 17. It stopped at Ohio. Oregon, Washington, and Idaho is supposed to be Columbia! Not the banana repubic version but the New World version.
Alaska, New Russia, along with Yukon and Alberta. Itís not supposed to be the 50th state!
California? New Spain, together with the Southwest and Baja Mexico.
I mean everything got screwed up! Why? Because paco did some dodgey wheelign and dealing, making out with a 50% commission while I had my back turned! And knowing him, he probably took that commission and invested it in something back then. Oil land or iron mines or something. (And yes, Iím fully aware that photos of JP Morgan is very familiar).
